My Role & Sun50's Culture
My goal is to remove the stigma that UPF clothing is scratchy and dowdy. I design our apparel, perfect the fit of each garment and help our team choose sustainable materials for each collection.
Each member of our team is incredibly talented, lovely to work with and truly dedicated to reducing the incidence of skin cancer. I love collaborating together to design stylish sun protective clothing, made with sustainable materials, that’s manufactured in the USA!
A Little about me
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be an artist and designer.
Throughout my career, I have worked with hundreds of brands from start-ups to long established companies designing soft goods for manufacturing. From fast-fashion to tailor-made specialty pieces, I have seen all sides of the apparel industry.
As an outdoor enthusiast, I have always taken sun protection and environmental preservation seriously. After living aboard a sailboat for a few years, I understand first-hand the importance of working with a brand that puts the planet and sustainability first. I also adventured with reality TV and was a designer on Project Runway Season 9.
Living a balanced life
I love working with teens and young women interested in art and fashion. I am interested in providing a new definition of beauty. In contrast to the glamorous veneer that has long been valued as the epitome of fashion, I find real people, all bodies and adventure truly fun and beautiful.
